X-Man is a pornographic video game made for the Atari 2600 by Universal Gamex, programmed by Alan Roberts and H. K. Poon.[1] This game was released in 1983.

This game has nothing to do with the similarly named Marvel's comic book series entitled X-Men. Rather, it was a pornographic video game, the only title made by this company by Universal Games. It had faced protest from women’s groups when it was first released, and most retailers declined to carry it - or if they did - you had to be 18 years old to purchase the game, or you had to ask for it under-the-counter. It is consequently very hard to find today, as of 2014. However, it is easier to find this game in PAL format and rarer in NTSC.[2]

There have been reports that there are between twenty to forty-five cartridges in existence.


In the game, the player controls a naked man in a labyrinth. The objective is to reach the door at the center of the labyrinth avoiding scissors, crabs or teeth. Clearing the challenge, the player enters a bonus stage simulating a sexual intercourse between a man and a woman.
